Heritage Trams this week

For the last time this year we round-up just where you can find heritage trams operating over the next seven days just as things start to die down after a very busy 2014 season. You just have a few more days left to enjoy a ride on a tram in their natural habitat with the Blackpool Tramway Illuminations tours continuing until Sunday 9th November. Elsewhere we are down to the winter operators with Beamish, Birkenhead, Heaton Park and Summerlee all continuing to run trams. (We will have a full round-up of winter trams next Thursday).
